Located in the heart of Wrocław’s Market Square, Literatka hosts a congregation of avid literature and liquor enthusiasts.
Choose from a table basking in the golden Polish sunshine, an oversized leather couch in the main room, or worn, floral-patterned chairs in the back den where smoking is allowed and even encouraged. Soft yellow, smoke-embedded walls give way to Gothic vaulted ceilings and ornate brass chandeliers. A raised platform is the perfect pedestal for lectures and book signings as a backdrop of floor-to-ceiling shelves groan under the weight of hundreds of tomes.
The winding staircase leading to the loft, which is bolstered by bookshelves, creates a cozy alcove, while in the adjacent corner a rustic upright piano is tucked away. Want to take a break from deep discussion or writing? Then borrow one of the magazines, delve into an available newspaper, or just enjoy the pictures of famous writers dispersed across the wall like a disfigured checkered board.
It’s decadent décor, a stockpile of filled bookshelves, free Wi-Fi, and a varied selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, make café pub Literatka the academic’s delight.
